Luxembourg now has only one landfill for non-hazardous waste intended for the disposal of household, bulky and similar waste.
Biowaste consists of biodegradable garden or park waste, food or kitchen waste from households, restaurants, caterers or retail stores, as well as comparable waste from food processing plants. Biowaste with a high water content, especially kitchen waste or food industry waste, is best suited for anaerobic digestion. The treatment of organic waste in anaerobic digestion plants makes it possible to produce biogas as well as a residue that can be used as a soil amendment.
The Environment Agency has commissioned a specialized and approved external expert to carry out sound level measurements at 10 selected immission points. The aim of the mission was to measure the sound pressure at a measurement point representative of each zone or potential quiet oasis, with the aim of characterising this type of zone in more detail and determining the impact by road traffic noise or other noises. These areas represent potential areas for recreation and resourcing that are regularly used by local people and tourists. For the measurement and calculation methods, the external expert used the standards ISO 1996-1: 2016 and ISO 1996-2: 2017.
Biowaste consists of biodegradable garden or park waste, food or kitchen waste from households, restaurants, caterers or retail stores, as well as comparable waste from food processing plants. Drier waste such as garden and park waste is best suited for composting. In composting facilities, organic waste is transformed by aerobic degradation into a product (compost) which can be used as a soil amendment.
Georeferenced point where the global electric field strength from GSM transmitting antennas operating in the frequency band 791 MHz to 2 690 MHz is measured. The measured values are average actual values measured at a well-defined point in time. Measurements are made at regular intervals and according to changes in the radio sites surrounding the measurement point. The measurement reports represent the contribution of each operator and each frequency band operated as well as the sum of the electric field produced by all transmitting antennas.

Inert waste is waste that does not undergo any significant physical, chemical or biological modification : Inert waste does not decompose, burn or produce any other physical or chemical reaction, is not biodegradable and does not deteriorate other materials with which it comes into contact in a way that could lead to environmental pollution or harm human health. In practice, and according to the modified Grand-Ducal regulation of 24 February 2003 concerning the landfill of waste, waste that can be considered inert waste is - made up almost entirely of natural soil and rock resulting from their extraction during construction work; - resulting from road works and of a mineral nature; - from construction, renovation or demolition sites, which are mainly of a mineral nature. One condition is that the inert waste is not contaminated by hazardous substances or other potential nuisance generators.
The cellular phone cadastre represents the locations as well as the operating licences for classified GSM transmitting antennae operating in the frequency band between 791 MHz and 2690 MHz.
The map shows the locations of - buildings which are subject to an operating permit for the storage of waste (according to the amended law of 10 June 1999 on classified establishments), or - buildings that are subject to registration (according to the amended law of 21 March 2012 on waste management), for the storage or warehousing of waste.
Electricity from energy plants that are powered by Biomass. As “Biomass” it is referred to waste wood and biodegradable waste.
